Early voting for Tuesday’s primary underway

Early in-person voting runs through Saturday

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) -Early voting began Thursday ahead of next Tuesday’s primary.

Under a new state law, people can vote early Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

According to poll workers at the Kroger Field voting site in Lexington, about 300-to-400 voted Thursday.  Election officials say with more poll workers and booths this year, things have run faster and more smoothly.

According to early voter Melinda Bellville, the process was not only quick and easy, but also important.

“I think it’s not important enough to a lot of people because even though this is a May Primary, we are still choosing our mayor, we are choosing candidates for our council, but I insist on having the tiny little voice they give me,” Bellville said.

The primary will determine each party’s lineup of candidates for the November general election.
